Abstract

Cell response to sub-microsecond pulsed electric fields (sm-PEF) is examined using an equivalent circuit model (ECM) where a network of electrical components is used to represent the cell environment and the cell with its internal structures. The model is evaluated by comparing results with published data from other numerical studies. It is shown that the model, which is not computationally demanding, may be usefully adopted to examine cell and organelle response in vitro, and where the applied pulse shape and frequency spectrum may be of significance.
